Cocker Dating

hey yall - a few years ago I started collecting serial numbers for autocockers and matching what the owner said and cross referenced this against the features that were added over the years. I hosted this info on scroadkill.com and teamsection8.com .. and now it is here.

If a mod would please consider sticking this for future reference... - thanks.
-----------------------------------------------

Model -- Serial Numbers --- Year Made

Sniper I --- 1 - 500 --- 1987 --- Bud was making Sniper 1 - machined bodies - in his garage

Sniper I --- 500 - 2107 --- 1988 - 1989 (<Summer) --- Paintslinger16 : "WGP made the switch from a machined to an extruded receiver. Snipers with serial numbers over 2000 have the extruded bodies, as do all the new Sniper II's."
(774 Thumper says)

Sniper 1 1/2 --- 2108 - 2524 --- Early 1989 --- If it's over #2100 then they will have the sniper II body. They used up the Sniper 1 stock (so the #2100 - 2500 is more or less a sniper 1 1/2, after that they were true sniper II's. Joelrf600r: "a 1.5 is the nickname for the transition guns that didn't have all the sniper2 features, but had the extruded sniper2 body. They essentially have the extruded body, but still have the sniper1 style bolt/block combo. some of them have the sniper1 pump, others have the sniper2 pump. i don't know what the number range is for them." 2524 looks like a 1.5

Sniper II --- 2525 - 2891 --- 1989(>Summer) --- In the article if refers to the switch in the summer of '89.
"WGP made the switch from a machined to an extruded receiver. Snipers with serial numbers over 2000 have the extruded bodies, as do all the new Sniper II's." Also states that breech chamber size was reduced after serial #400 to prevent double feeds. The pictures in the article show serial number 2555. APG press release Nov 1989 -- pg58/59 -- pg61 -- pg62 -- pg64 --- I know 2530 is a sniper II -- PAINTCHECK Mar 1990 press release -- pg23 I know 2841 is a sniper II (Firepro84's)


Sniper II --- 3757 ----3810 --- 1990 --- check out Firepro84's 3757 sniper II - 1990 is best guess. --- PAINTCHECK Mar 1990 press release ---- pg22 -- pg23 --- 3810 belongs to noclue119 ---

--- 29,745 --- 1996 --- 29745 (jasons) - Thumper says 96 - backblock

---40,033 to 60,141 --- 1998 --- 40033 is a 98 --- 40177 is a 98 --- 44235 is a 98 --- 60141 is a 98 -- timing rod not threaded

--- 60,764 to 72,450 --- 1999 --- 60764 is a 99 -- slanted gills, threaded rod --- 72450 is a 99 - definitely not 2K (from Vortex body)

---73,607 - 88,888 --- 2K0 --- I know 73,607 is a 2K0 -- and Kmac says so too.. --I know 74,139 is a 2K0 -- I know 88,888 is a 2K0
